Magic item Clarification

The Axe, Great +3, Dæmon’s Thirst is described as "double-bitted on one side (single cheek with two perpendicular bits)".  Can anyone tell me in plain language what that would look like?  Google hasn't been helpful.

Re: Magic item Clarification

I believe Jeff means it has two separate blades on one side of the axe (as opposed to the usual double-headed axe where the blades are on opposite sides of the handle). I can't find any pictures of an actual axe of this configuration, but I guess that's what makes it fantasy. https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png
